Baking Hershey's Special Dark Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies





My favorite cookie recipe is chocolate chip, it's because it was the first cookie recipe I learned to bake. Before' I used to buy cookies from the store because I didn't know how to bake them especially coming from the country(Philippines) where baking is not the norm in the kitchen.  I do not do that anymore since I now know how to bake. Chocolate chip cookies recipe is easy and I can play with the recipe by adding or removing ingredients yet still end up with delicious and soft cookies. Baking cookies has become my bonding moment with my kids, they help me bake and they get to try it first too. Here's what recipe we came up that day, I call it Hershey's Special Dark Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. I incorporate coconut because I love coconut and I grew up snacking on it, not only it tasted good but there are a lot of health benefits you get from it. 
The recipe for this is usually found at the back of the Hershey's special dark chocolate chip package. I followed all the ingredients and procedure  but added one(1) cup of sweetened coconut into my cookie mixture.

Hubby and I love dark chocolate, according to our research  it has more health benefits than the milk chocolate. Baking your own cookies is actually cheaper and fresher than the one in the store. It is fun and you can experiment by adding your favorite ingredient/s that can blend with cookie recipe.

If you want your cookies soft  and not crunchy, do not over bake them. I usually bake them 10 to 12 minutes only because mine was 2(two)tablespoon each. The Package will tell you to bake them only 8(eight) to 10(ten) minutes. Sometimes the best indication is the appearance, remove the baking tray when your cookies turned light brown in color just like my first picture. 

What is your favorite cookie recipe? Do you bake with your love ones too?

I love to bake and these chocolate chip cookies look ready to jump off the page and into my mouth. I haven't used the dark chocolate chips yet, but will do that soon. Thanks for the pictures of what your baking day was like.
